This was out first visit to the Alps and I think we were incredibly lucky to choose Marc's chalet to stay in. It really is in a beautiful, peaceful location, also the cleanest holiday home we have ever stayed in and is clearly a much loved and cared for family home. The kitchen is equipped with every conceivable item you might need, and the open plan living and dining area is ideal, with plenty of room for the six of us in our party. The 4G broadband was three times faster than our broadband connection back home, so the kids were very happy on that front also! Our holiday was in the summer so no need for any fires or heating, but I can imagine it is delightful and cosy in the winter.
The surrounding area is truly stunning. As well as all the hiking and walking trails of varying difficulty, we particularly enjoyed Meiringen; the Sherlock Holmes museum is very interesting with a great audio guide, before then going on to explore the Reichenbach Falls (Trotti scooters back were huge fun also). The Meiringen Swimming Pool was a really unexpected find; easily the most picturesque outdoor pool we've ever visited, and includes picnic areas, a great cafe, huge water slide, football, volleyball and outdoor table tennis tables - a whole day out in itself.
I can highly recommend the chalet and the area, we would love to come back. Thanks again Marc for your help, advice, and your lovely chalet.
